Our '90s teenage dreams are being fulfilled, 16 years on - damn, we feel old. Why? Because NBC has decided to give 1999's *Cruel Intentions *a reboot, in the form of a TV series. We know. We K-N-O-W!

This time around, the cult classic's original stars Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon have a son - Bash Casey - who at 16 years old discovers his father's journal and goes is in search of answers, reports Deadline.

Following the next chapter of the dark, sordid world of his father Sebastian Valmont (Phillippe) and Annette Hargrove (Witherspoon), the show will see Bash leave his hometown in Kansas to embark on a scholarship at San Francisco's prestigious Preparatory Academy.


    At the school, Bash will find himself engulfed entirely in a new world of sex, money, power and corruption.

    And to excite us even more, CI's original director, Roger Kumble, will oversee the entire TV version.

    The original film was a modern update of the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and alongside Ryan was Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Sebastian's sexually twisted stepsister trying to seduce Reese's character.

    Writer and director Kumble was also involved in the second film - a prequel - but not involved in the third.

    And to be fair the third wasn't that good, so hopefully this TV series is a success.
